Now you can tackle Magic Mountain.LOL

 I used to visit that area and remember these giant open pit phosphorous mine.  I would think that an abandoned mine would be a good place to explore with a CJ unless they are all filled with water.  Or, low friends in high places may gain you admittance to an active site.  I would think that if you drove the rig up to the field office of one of those mines, before you knew it there would be gawkers,  followed by a lets take a spin around the site.

The guy actually did not want it and had me take it off and put the regular hand guards back on. Then I sold it to a friend for $300 that cash I put back in to the jeep for accessories and new tires. If your intrested in the launcher, a Spikes tactical makes them here in Florida.

Yeah its Harvard Red, at first when I was doing the research on the color I thought it was was luzon red but I have found out that is more of a maroon. As for the parking light they are amber, I think the color of the jeep makes them look red.  Thanks again for all the great comments.
